The World’s Easiest Quilter’s Knot – really!

July 25, 2015

I know I can’t be the only one to have never mastered the Quilter’s Knot. The only way I was ever taught was what I call the “magic method” because that’s what it seemed like to me! 

It involves wrapping the thread magically around a few fingers and there’s a knot. (I’m even a knitter – I can make a slipknot with my eyes closed while standing on my head spitting wooden nickles. Well. Maybe real nickels – I wouldn’t want a splinter.) Anyway! 

I was always that sad, sad person trying to do a bunch of overhand knots in a row to make a knot big enough to stop when it hit the cotton. Of course, those overhand knots never land in the same place, so you use half the thread before you get enough of a knot. 

NOT ANYMORE. 

Check this video out, and I’ll demonstrate the Quilter’s Knot technique that I teach to ALL my beginning quilting students (and I tell them – honestly – that it’s worth the price of admission to the class!).

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
